Update Mapbender3 to a newer Version

To update Mapbender3 you have to do the following steps:

  • get the new version from http://mapbender3.org/builds/ or nightlies from http://mapbender3.org/builds/nightly/
  • save your configuration files (parameters.yml and config.yml) and your old Mapbender (files and database)
  • replace the new files
  • merge your configuration files (check for new parameters and changes)
  • update your Mapbender database
  • copy the screenshots from you ald Mapbender version from /web/uploads/ to the folder /web/uploads Verzeichnis of your new installation
  • Templates: If you are using your own template you have to compare your scripts with the new scripts (are there any changes?)
  • print templates: if you use your own print templates: copy them back to app/Resources/MapbenderPrintBundle/templates/.
  • That’s all! Have a look at your new Mapbender version
